Location: Superior, WI
Shape: Light
Light travels in sky, accelerates and then disappears

At approximately 10 pm on a 07/11/09 evening, 3 of us were sitting around the campfire overlooking Dowling lake in Douglas county WI. We saw what we at first believed to be an aircraft coming from the south, right above the tree line. We even made the comment that it was about time for the 10:00 flight from Minneapolis to be making an arrival.

About five minutes later we notice that the light did not appear to be approaching at the right speed, it was still pretty far out. It was almost like it had been moving ever so slowly. Shortly after, it seemed to pick up speed and appeared to rise higher into the sky -- then, just seemed to vanish. It was almost like someone hit a light switch -- it just, went out.

Very strange, the three of us talked about it all night!
